I took a look at the Kyoto signers to see which country had reduced its greenhouse gases the most. Which one was it?
Latvia. One of the smallest countries in the world, Latvia clings to the edge of the former Soviet Union and has the distinction of being the 3rd poorest country in the European Union. Their citizens live in concrete housing blocks where their hot water is shut off most of the time. What else is Latvia known for? Human rights abuses.
So, what does this tell you? That if you're a poor nation, one of the poorest, and you control your citizens with an iron fist you'll have the pleasure of reporting to your masters that you have met or exceeded their goals.
Cold gruel, anyone?
